Starmart advertises that its coaches come with Internet access. I did not have any success getting online at any point during my one trip with them.

I booked Hatten thru agoda.com, but it was stated max only 2 occupants while i have 2 adult and 1 child. Any idea will they impose any restriction?

they dun check.

unless u need extra bed. the bed should be enough for 3 of u unless u are big in size. can ask the child to sleep on the sofa.

I will go to Malacca in July. Got a few questions. Please help me.

1. I want to take coach from Johor to Malacca. My plan is early morning take taxi to Kranji MRT, take 970 to bus station in Johor then buy coach ticket to Malacca. I want to reach Malacca before 1 pm. What time do you think that I can start from Kranji? Are there many coaches to Malacca in the morning?

2. Can you please recommend me a budget place for 1 night in Malacca?

3. My plan is staying in Malacca for 1 night. Do you have some recommended places to go in afternoon, evening and the next morning? where to eat lunch, dinner?

Waiting for your advices.
you can try:
Fenix Inn (opposite Palawan Mall), Puri Hotel (one street behind Jonker Street), Bala House and many many more.

you can read this thread or other thread in Malacca in this forum. There are many recommendations.

In my last trip 5 people shared 2 rooms (so it's 2 and 3 for each room).
Told the receptionist about it, she didn't object and even asked we wanted to order another breakfast :s
Stayed there in Nov 2012

planning to go via coach and stay at hatten from 8 - 10 august (2nights)..

tried to look for coach online, not sure is it because they have not added the trip as it's still 2 month away, or because it's the first day of hari raya puasa so trips are limited? (even starmart only has night coaches)

normally i would choose the adventurous way, eg take public bus to larkin then buy a tix up then get return tix when i arrive, but the dates fall on long weekend so i thought it's better to confirm both ways first.

anyone went malacca during hari raya can advise?

hatten 2 nights during the period is around $250~ .. reasonable for PH

Normally coach operator will only open their schedule one month in advance before departure.. expect super jam during holiday period,

Unless no choice, try to avoid long weekend.

Stayed at hatten hotel and highly do not recommend it.
Tour group hotel with tons of people.
breakfast buffet queue was 10 minutes long. Quantity and not quality of food.

construction outdoors and inside the hotel all day except at night.

service guy rang door bell 4 times at 11pm to give me a laundry bag and tried to get into the room when I didnt answer. Trying to steal stuff?

The location is in a generic mall area and not at the interesting jonker st.
nothing around except two malls.

Staff was nice but definitely do not r3commend the place.

first bad review i ever heard. probably the only worries is the service guy who trying to burge into the door when they thought no one is around.

did you feedback to the customer service officer? so did they really open the door to come in??

no choice, only PH get to take break
read that malacca mostly non muslim so i guess holiday experience there more or less unaffected. just want a short getaway.

so i wait another month and check the coach schedule again better? starmart have all other schedules for days after hari raya, and have the whole day timings available. cannot be so fierce my date fully booked already?
